Answer: Based on your description I am not sure what is causing this however you might want to check that they are rooting out into the surrounding soil beyond the potting mix. This could be related to drought stress or poor rooting. It could also be related to salt spray or salt runoff from a roadway. You might want to check with your retailer and/or county extension for more help in troubleshooting. I hope it is nothing serious.
